The earth is our mother, she feeds us and nurtures us, and if we don't take care of her, she wont take care of us....Quenten Agius, storyteller, sharing culture and stories of Ngadjuri country (Mid North, Burra region, Southern Flinders Ranges, South Australia).
Quenten Agius (narration) : The old people tell us a story, about the snake and how it came out of the waterhole, and you can see the colours and the markings as it travelled along the land. For 100,000 years the old people have handed down creation stories, with creation stories come connection to country, and out of the stories come song, with song then comes ceremony that we are handing down to our next generation. Our stories are written in the land. Me and the animal got lore - me and the plant got lore - me and the insect got lore - to look after one another. To understand country, you need to go out in country and feel that you part of country.
Quenten Agius and grandson (on camera) : What they was tapping here is what they was seeing in the sky. Solar Storms. See the one over there, same way see. He may be there, and he makes noise and his noise travel over that way, make you think he's over there - see he's teasing you again. Can you see the story papa told you about, with the big dinosaurs? Yeh. The big Kangaroo. Can you see the footprint? Yes, there and there. Where's the other one? There.
Quenten Agius (narration) : The images engraved on the rocks, telling you a story, and foretelling what's going to happen in the future. The earth is our mother, she feeds us and nurtures us, and if we don't take care of her, she wont take care of us.
